Stoke Bruerne, Class 1
Welcome to Class 1!
In our class we love to learn through play, both inside and outside the classroom. Every day the children are asked to explore new things and try their best. They are always actively engaged in their learning, a large majority of it through play, alongside focused activities.
This term our topic is 'If You Go Down To The Woods Today...'. Throughout the term the children's classroom will develop to help them to engage in the topic, central to this is transforming their role play area into a woodland habitat. The children will be writing descriptions of settings based on this theme, alongside a tale of fear, report writing and an innovated version of a fable. They will be consolidating their understanding of place value value, addition and subtraction and problem solving.
We're developing our on going scientific skills in plants and growing, and also developing our understanding of animals and their habitats, through fun, practical investigations. Our artwork will explore paint, collage, modelling and drawing . We will use a range of construction materials and vehicles to help us build our co-ordination and gross motor skills, and to continue to learn about the importance of team work.
Our theme of courage will guide our assemblies and class ethos. We will take time to consider what it means to be courageous and give thanks for those who've been courageous through simple prayers and reflections.
Please find attached our topic letter for this term which will tell you a little bit more about what we'll be doing.
Mrs Judd and Mrs Smith.
